In the Shadow of the Dachstein

Steiermark’s dramatic mountains
Nestling on the high Ramsau Plateau, Ramsau is a quiet village, with just a handful of shops and cafés.

IMPORTANT: the hotel pool will be closed for renovations in Summer 2019. During this time, the hotel will run a free shuttle bus to the indoor pool at nearby Schladming and to the bathing lakes in the locality.

PLEASE NOTE: most rooms in Austrian hotels are normally one large base with two mattresses/duvets. We refer to these as 'Austrian Twins' and they are locally regarded to serve requests for both double and twin bedded rooms. Separate twin beds or traditional double beds with one large mattress are rare and cannot be guaranteed.

Meal arrangements: dinner & breakfast

Hotel Matschner

The Knaus family offer a warm welcome to their well appointed, chalet-style hotel, which continues to earn consistently high praise from guests. Plenty of light pinewood creates a comfortable and traditional ambience, and there are impressive mountain views from many of the rooms.

Rooms: The bedrooms are well equipped, and all have a balcony from which to admire the dramatic panoramas. All have a shower, radio, telephone, hairdryer and television. If you would like more space (and a bath), you can upgrade up to one of the larger rooms, which also all have a balcony.

Facilities: There is plenty of space to relax throughout the hotel, including a cosy wood-panelled Stube bar, a lounge with large picture windows and an indoor garden in which complimentary tea and cakes are served each afternoon, a sun terrace and a massage room. In addition, an adjoining spa complex, accessed by a short underground tunnel from the hotel and also open to villagers, offers two indoor pools (one measuring 24 x 12 metres, the other 10 x 8 metres), whirlpools, saunas, jacuzzis, steam-showers, a solarium and a relaxarium.

Restaurant: Like the other public rooms, the restaurant is light and attractive, with plenty of pinewood. Breakfasts are a generous buffet including home-made bread and local cheeses, while dinner is a four-course meal of refined, highly-praised Austrian cuisine. For the salad course and dessert, you can take your pick from the extensive buffet. A special gala dinner is held once a week, and vegetarians are always well catered for – a separate menu is offered every evening. In addition, there are always organic options incorporating produce from the hotel’s own organic farm.
